"So, we all die.
We just don’t talk about it. And by IT, I mean, what actually happens when someone dies. We’re all curious about it but we also know that we can’t say “I’m sorry your Grandma passed away. Who did you call when it happened? Did she go to the morgue? Did you write the obituary?“
"This was one of my favorite maternity sessions, simply because this Mama was so excited to capturing her pregnancy. Previous losses gave them gave them such gratitude for this growing baby in her belly and it showed in her eyes and in her smile."
"Creating sauce from fruit is so delicious and perfectly simple. It's the perfect way to welcome summer into our kitchens.
You can add it to ice cream, shortcake, pancakes, french toast, angel food cake, biscuits, oatmeal or just lick it directly off the spoon.

Just about everyday, one of the kids will ask “Mom, what’s for dinner?” and every so often, I have to give the the dreaded answer… “Leftovers.” “ugh. whhhhyyyy?” “Because, we have 13 containers of food just waiting to be eaten and also, Mama needs a break!” “ok.” “But darling, I am making fresh bread. Maybe […]
This week is pretty different around here, which is good and also bad. It’s good because we all need a break in the kitchen, right? But it’s bad because my kids are with their dad, so it’s pretty quiet. Just Adam, Sarah Jane and I. The kids will be back on Wednesday, by Thursday we’ll […]
A few years ago, Adam and I left the beach and drove past one of our favorite food trucks, the Rolling Stonebaker. On special, was a whiskey peach pizza. Adam ordered it, I ordered sausage. He LOVED it, once I took a bite, I have to admit, I loved it, as well. This recipe is […]
Homemade crescent rolls are a great introduction into working with bread. The outcome is a fluffy and buttery, melt in your mouth bread that doesn’t require butter smothered on it or really, a meal cooked along side it. (as we learned the other night when the kids discovered them. An hour before dinner.) The first […]
There is something magical, and surprisingly, easy about making your own salad dressing. The plus side is knowing what exactly you’re consuming and being able to adjust flavor, if you need to do so. Really, the only downside is that you can’t let it sit in your fridge for months and months, but that’s because […]
I know what you’re going to say…”Beth, WHY WOULD WE MAKE SPAGHETTI SAUCE? JARS ARE SOLD EVERYWHERE FOR LIKE A DOLLAR.” Don’t lie to me, you were saying that in big ol’ capital letters. So, just hear me out… It’s easy. It tastes better. One batch can make enough for three boxes of pasta. No […]
